Concrete Step Repair 

Your home’s safety and curb appeal depend on well-maintained exterior concrete steps. Unfortunately, these steps can deteriorate over time, showing signs of damage, sinking, or cracking, posing both aesthetic and safety concerns for your family and visitors. 

At Dry Pro Foundation & Crawlspace Specialists, we understand the importance of a secure and inviting entryway. As your trusted experts in North Carolina for concrete step repair, we have the experience and expertise to efficiently restore your steps with minimal disruption. 

Our Exclusive Concrete Lifting Solution 

Our concrete step repair process takes a unique approach to restore both the structural integrity and visual appeal of your exterior concrete steps. Unlike traditional methods such as mudjacking, repouring, or complete replacement, which often provide only temporary solutions, our modern approach employs advanced techniques, including concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections. 

Dry Pro Foundation & Crawl Space Specialists utilizes an exclusive SettleStop PolyRenewal™ system that not only revitalizes your concrete steps but also ensures their long-term durability and safety. We focus on addressing the root causes of the problem to provide you with a lasting solution. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Recognizing signs of concrete step damage is essential for timely action to prevent potential safety hazards and further home damage. Look out for these common signs: 

  • Visible Cracks: Small cracks can expand over time, indicating structural problems. 
  • Uneven Step Levels: Steps that are no longer level or have height variations signal settlement and instability. 
  • Tilting or Sloping Steps: Tilted or sloped steps may indicate potential foundation issues. 
  • Sinking Steps: Sunken steps compromise safety and suggest soil settlement or erosion beneath the concrete. 
  • Steps Separating from Foundation: If steps are pulling away from your home’s foundation, it’s a sign of underlying structural problems. 
  • Sinking Porch: A sunken porch may be related to soil issues affecting your concrete steps. 
  • Hollow Sounds: Hollow or empty sounds when tapping the steps can mean voids or spaces forming beneath the concrete. 
  • Pooling Water or Drainage Issues: Water pooling around your steps or poor drainage can lead to further deterioration. 
  • Crumbling Edges or Corners: Surface imperfections weaken the structural integrity of your steps. 
  • Pits, Flakes, or Stains: Surface imperfections can indicate the need for repair and may contribute to further damage if left unaddressed. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Absolutely. Neglecting concrete step repair can lead to safety hazards and increased repair costs. Cracked or sunken steps are not only unsightly but also pose a significant safety risk, potentially causing accidents and injuries. 

Timely concrete step repair is essential to preserve your property’s structural integrity and prevent more extensive damage. Quick fixes like repouring or mudjacking are often temporary and fail to address underlying issues. 

At Dry Pro Foundation & Crawlspace Specialists, we offer comprehensive solutions in North Carolina, ensuring your entire property remains safe, stable, and aesthetically pleasing. Our experts can assess the damage and provide tailored PolyRenewal™ solutions, saving you money in the long run and preserving your home’s value.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

At Dry Pro Foundation & Crawlspace Specialists, our dedicated team of experts follows a precise procedure to complete the concrete step repair process: 

  • Identify Problem Areas: We pinpoint the sunken sections of your concrete steps. 
  • Strategic Drilling: Small holes are drilled into the identified problem areas. 
  • Injection Ports: Injection ports are inserted into these holes. 
  • Foam Mixing: We prepare a specialized two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam for the repair. 
  • Foam Injection: High-density polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete, filling voids and lifting sunken steps. 
  • Curing Process: The foam cures in about 15 minutes. 
  • Port Removal and Hole Filling: After curing, we remove injection ports and fill holes to restore a seamless appearance. 
  • Crack and Joint Sealing: Cracks and joints are sealed with a protective sealant to ensure repair longevity.
